IDOT Consolidated Vehicle Procurement Program

Our son is nonverbal, but by his body language, we gather that he is proud, happy, he feels accepted and important, and that he belongs to an extended family – Rimland. Rimland nurtures his self-esteem, structures his daily activities, and installs goals. He used to be crabby, but now we often see him smile.

We are happy to announce that Rimland received our third van from the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Consolidated Vehicle Procurement Program. This van is a fourteen-passenger paratransit vehicle with a lift. RimlandNews followers may recall that Rimland was awarded a total of five vehicles from the program, including two mini-van paratransit vehicles with ramps, two light-duty paratransit vehicles with lifts, and one medium-duty paratransit vehicle with lift. This past February, we received the two light-duty paratransit vehicles with lifts. We expect to receive two more vans (two mini-van vehicles with ramps) by the end of the year.
